Hello, world...or at least the bit that drops by the blog!  I have been a lot more erratic with my blogging this year, and I would credit this to my possibly unique status of being a blogger without a laptop.  The pattern is here to stay for a while at least until I find a replacement.  Moving on to brighter spots, I have been trying a lot of skincare over the past few months - from masks and serums to scrubs and peels, I have tried quite a few products - and the Burt's Bees Intense Hydration Treatment Mask with Clary Sage has been one such new addition to my routine.  I have oily-combination skin, and normally I steer away from oil-packed/intensely hydrating anything for my face.  I spend a lot of time indoors, though, and the low humidity has been leaving my skin feeling a lot more dehydrated these days, and that's how I ended up giving this mask a try.

While I was a bit (a lot) worried about the oils listed on the ingredients list, I was intrigued with the neat little description about the hardy clary sage plant (enough to do a google search on it), and yes, of all the things that convinced me this mask would work, it was the story about this water-retaining plant on a lonely Mediterranean hill that got me interested.  Plus, the fact that this is mask is one of the easiest to apply.  The consistency of the mask is like a thick lotion, and it goes on the same, feeling thick and creamy on the skin.  As instructed, I apply a thick layer of the mask, and it disappears as it soaks into to the skin.  Wait about 10-15 minutes and wipe off - I prefer using a warm, moist cloth to wipe off the residue (which isn't much to take off with a dry tissue).  Pat dry and follow with a moisturizer if needed.

Burt's Bees Intense Hydration Treatment Mask definitely gets my vote for a simple, effective hydrating mask that delivers on it's claims.  The creamy mask is easy to apply, and once I wipe off the mask, my skin feels moisturized and hydrated.  Not oily - just soft, smooth, and moisturized.  I use the mask every 2-3 days, always at night, and I follow this with a light moisturizer (Belif Aqua Bomb) since I feel it helps seal in the effect of the mask.  Since the mask is almost like a cream and not really visible on the skin - and because it is so hydrating - this is definitely going into my in-flight skincare bag.  I have oily-combination, acne-prone skin, and depending on the weather, I do have days when my skin feels a bit parched.  This mask (along with gentle exfoliation) works for my skin, and I think it would be a good pick for someone in the normal-dry skin spectrum but not really a necessity for those with oily skin.  Overall, one of the best masks I have tried in a while!

  1. Hi Radhika, how have u been?

    Mask sounds super hydrating and moisturizing to me, will give it a go during winters though!

    1. Hey good. Finding things to keep busy offline - gardening, books :D The mask would be good for Burt's Bees available in India?

  2. Bummer about the laptop...but I'm loving the sound of this mask! While my face is oily, it does need a sot of hydration every once in awhile. Bonus that this is cruelty-free. Will pick this up the next time I find it on sale :D

    1. Hoping to pick one up soon....whenever Apple gets around to releasing the new macbook pros :D Do give the mask a try - it would be a good pick especially if it's on sale.
